Purchased a 10' unlimited sport a few weeks ago thinking I would leave it stock for a while. I guess a few weeks is long enough. So I have a few questions.

1) 35s or 37s I would like to put 37s on the rig but worried about having issues with the lift that I would need (to clear with no rubs).

2) What's a good lift to go with and how high do I need to go to clear 35s and 37s.

35" Tires - stock suspension with flat fenders and the right back spacing wheels.
35" Tires - 2,5" lift and stock fenders and the right back spacing wheels.

37" Tires - 2,5 to 3" lift with flat fenders and the right back spacing wheels.
37" Tires - 3,5" plus lift with stock fenders and right wheel back spacing.

Your stock axels will not cope with 37" tires, keep that in mind.

And consider regearing for tires that size. Especially if you have an auto transmission.

And don't forget the drive train issues you will encounter if you go 3+ inches in lift without accounting for the new angles...

What's your budget, and how do you plan to use the Jeep?

I'm looking to start trail riding. My budget is 4 grand. I don't want to spend any more than that for wheel tire lift combo.

I went with:
5 rugged ridge wheels X 175 = 925
5 35" Duratracs x ~ 320 = 1600
2.5" Metalcloak Light ~ 2400
Artec Front Truss Kit ~ 250

= 5175
-100 tire rebate
-1000 selling stock wheels and tires
- maybe a couple of hundred for stock suspension? Not sure yet

= ~4k outta pocket

just to give you an idea...
